Systemic Enzyme Therapy: How Many Capsules Should You Take?

Now that you are more familiar with systemic enzyme therapy and its numerous benefits, it’s time to talk about dosage. :-)

As we have said in several of our earlier articles, there is no known side effects associated with systemic enzyme therapy — assuming that you do not currently suffer from a bleeding disorder or are on a blood thinning medication. It is not uncommon for doctors to place patients on as many as 10 systemic enzyme capsules 3 times a day. Of course, those patients generally tend to suffer from serious and painful diseases or conditions, and more often than not their doses are dramatically reduced within a few weeks.

With that being said, how many capsules should you take if you don’t suffer from a serious disease or condition? Well, reading the recommended dosage found on the label of a particular product is usually a good starting point. Because “blends” differ from one another, you will find that the recommended dosages also vary.

According to Dr. William Wong, a strong advocate for systemic enzyme therapy and a trustworthy source on this topic, the typical dosage for encapsulated systemic enzyme blends is 3 capsules 3 times a day. Keep in mind, however, that some people react more to systemic enzyme blends than others, while some react less. This is why if no benefits are felt after 3 days he recommends people to start increasing the dosage to 4 capsules 3 times a day. If no benefits are still felt after increasing the dosage, he recommends taking 5 capsules 3 times a day, and on and on until people can confidently say that their condition has improved.

Tableted systemic enzymes, on the other hand, generally require bigger dosages to be effective. 5 tablets 3 times a day is usually what people start with, but it is not uncommon for people to increase their dosage to as many as 80 tablets a day!
